Posted on 06/30/2013 4:37:30 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In an emotional interview with Anderson Cooper, Trayvon Martins stepmother, Alicia Stanley, opened up about her inconsolable grief at the loss of a boy she helped to raise for 14 years, Zimmermans guilt, Trayvons character and being ignored by Trayvons father, Tracy Martin.
Her voice shaking with pain and tears in her eyes, Stanley explained that she had helped raise Trayvon since he was 3-years-old, and that he was at her home with his father and her daughters 90 percent of the time.
Trayvon was a kind person, a loving person, Stanley told Cooper. He loved children, babies. You know before this happened, I really believed he would have been working with children; he adored children. Hes not what the media make him out to be this thug.
Stanley said that when the media started coming around, Tracy Martin stopped communicating with her and she didnt understand why.
He would just he was busy.
Rachel Jeantel, 19, the last person to speak to Trayvon before Zimmerman killed him, testified that he referred to Zimmerman as a creepy-ass cracker, but Stanley is skeptical.
We didnt teach that kind of language in our home.(continued)

IIRC, Sybrina Fulton is his biological mother. Tracy and Sybrina split up, then Alicia raised him for 14 years and did a good job.
Then Tracy and Alicia split up. Trayvon was in his 'teens' then.
Tracy had a new girlfriend, Brandy Green. But Tracy couldn't take Trayvon with him (didn't want to take him), so he was dumped back on his biological mother. After a year or two with him constantly getting in trouble, drugs, gangfights, a gun, pot plants in his room, being suspended over and over, she kicked him out.
SO... the only place left was with DAD at Brandy Greens. This gave Tracy and Brandy a FREE BABYSITTER and the rest is history.
Odd now no one has heard a word from BRANDY GREEN, isn't it ? I bet she has some real zingers she could tell.
Sounds like exactly what happened . . . and what is happening to lots of other throwaway kids today too, both white and black, but more black kids, including those from middle-income families. Of course, there can be absolutely NOTHING spoken about this because it is totally un-PC to argue that kids need parents.
Sounds like she wants some of the money the parents are getting.
how sad. So, instead of these lousy parents seeing they are to blame for the way their son turned out, they point the finger at an innocent man. Typical of people who never see they do anything wrong.
Sadly this is a common scenario. Bioparents want to be their children’s friend and not their parent. The “family” court system, Child Protective and various other gov’t agents have a vested interest in free ranged children—all correction of children by adults is “abuse.” It keeps them in business. Factor in the Dr. Benjamin Spock effect, big pharma pushing meds for kids and you have utter feral youth.
This is the best (and only) source I could find.
Apparently, Sybrina Fulton didn't kick him out, she never lived with him ever since Tracy Martin and her split up back when Trayvon was 2years old ?
She only came into the picture when she saw Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton convinced her there was FAME AND FORTUNE to be made.

I have so many questions about Tracys relationship with Brandy Green. For one thing, they are both married.
Tracy Martin is married to Alicia Stanton Martin. No divorce on record. According to Alicia, they separated just a few weeks prior to Trayvons death.
I have even more questions about why Tracy Martin and Brandy Green said Trayvon had been to the community many times, yet no one at the community knows him. Sure, there was an article claiming the kids at The Retreat at Twin Lakes liked playing football with Trayvon, but which kids? Why didnt they know who the young black man was lying dead in their courtyard on February 26, 2012? Why didnt Tracy know the address?
In order to answer some of these questions, I did a bit of digging. I found someone does, or did live with Brandy, her sister. This information was not too hard to find in public records.
Who is Zakiya Laurent Richardson?
Shes a member of Marium 549 - the female chapter of black masons in Orlando, as is Brandy Green.
Zakiyas last name is Richardson now Im not sure if that is her maiden name or married name. I found a high-school mention of Zakiya Richardson. Zakiya has a criminal record under both names:
CHARGE: PETIT THEFT
ATTEMPT MARIJ TRAFF OVER 25LBS UP TO $2,000.LBS-0R 300 PLANT
MARIJ POSS W/INTENT TO SELL MFG OR DELIV
Also, Tabatha Green, a friend on Zakiyas change.org page, has a daughter named Dee Dee. Coincidence, Im sure.
Because CRUMP couldn't get the kind of SYMPATHY out of the public for a STEPMOTHER as he could the BIOLOGICAL MOTHER (even though she had nothing to do with him for 14 years).
Was Brandy Green even DAD's girlfriend, or was it her sister , ZAKIYA (who has a criminal record) ?
See post #28
Not exactly. I dug further for the facts.
See post #28
I didn’t have all the details right, but I found a better source.
See post #28, and click on the link and read it all.
There’s more to this picture than the ‘family’ and the Media would like you to know.
My timeline was not exactly correct.
Please go to post #28 and to the link there and read it all.
The truth about this family and the situation where Trayvon was living have been suppressed.
I wonder if CHAD JOSEPH (the younger boy described as TRAYVONS BROTHER) was even the child of BRANDY GREEN ?
Was it her sister’s child?
He loved children, babies... and he love mixn’ him some LEAN”
So now we know who raised this THUG and thanks for saying out in the open that everyone thinks he was a THUG
Truth is a bitter pill... some will never choke it down...
still doesnt really answer the question
given the nature of the typical black family in their economic class.,,,why didn’t the mother get the kid????
There is a story there.
